An announcement of some importance:
is moving to
It's the same strangness at a new location,
with complete editorial freedom.
My latest amendation: Ragnarok (revised and expanded) (8 July 99)
If you think something's missing... Loki and Baldr has now been moved to its own page (revised and expanded).
New outside contributions: Loki and Christ: A Scrutiny of Their Similarities by Carol Robe (27 June 1999). Don't check your sense of humour at the door.
Sigyn All we can safely say about Loki's wife.
*new* Ragnarok Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jotuns
Mythic Time More questions than answers on how to approach the issue of time as it relates to our myths.
Summary First, it was "Otter's Ransom" and now a brief explanation of Skadi. These were originally posted to the alt.mythology newsgroup, but since they're relevant to Loki I thought these "Cliffs Notes" might be of some interest.
Giants, Thor, and Loki An incomplete dialogue touching on various points concerning the aforementioned, to be amended as time allows.
"The so-called dark side is not wholly an evil or negative place or force; after all, some things remain in the shadows because we've placed them there out of fear or squeamishness." -- Jay Kinney

Truly Terrible Heathen Poetry So bad that it's good. But don't take my word for it, read it for yourself...
A little off-topic, but amusing enough that I couldn't pass it up: Top 10 Ways You Can Know You're a Berserkr in Modern Society by Úlfgrim Vílmeiðson. This was originally posted to a.r.a., but I thought it deserved a wider airing.

The Future of the Past
Why Am I Here?
It Said What? Or: If you can't translate it yourself, don't depend on a program to do it for you. An excrutiating example.
Works in progress: An article on Loki and "Trickster Theory," a more in-depth contextual analysis using the characteristics of the trickster as enumerated by contemporary scholars. Begs the question of why tricksters are among the most common mythological figures studied by scholars, but relegated by the contemporary pagan community to a small, dusty corner. Also: an article on Post-modernism as a Lokean paradigm.
